From the food-stoked star of the A&E series Scraps and the National Chef of Sur La Table, a ground-breaking cookbook that reshapes the way you look at ingredients and makes the most out of every resource in the kitchen, featuring 150 color photographs and 100 ingenious recipes that expand your mind, the way you cook, and how you live. Have you ever felt guilty throwing out food? Of course, you have, but that’s all about to change. The stuff you always thought of as trash just became the main course. Look into the fridge. At first glance it might not look like there’s much to eat, just a mishmash of ingredients that don’t go together. But carrot tops can be pesto and brown bananas are the start of an incredible cake. Suddenly you have uncovered an undiscovered treasure chest for making the most out of "nothing." Joel Gamoran dives into the kitchen, changing expectations, not just about how to use all ingredients to their max, but how to make the most of every resource in your kitchen. Flip over that cast-iron skillet for a stellar pizza stone. Don’t throw away those apple cores, shrimp shells, or leftover pickle juice. Transform them into gorgeous meals, such as Apple Core Butter Roasted Duck, Shrimp Shell Chowder, or Pickle Juice Brined Pork Chops. Think outside of the recipe box—learn to be creative when it comes to making food. Resourcefulness is an essential part of cooking; Gamoran’s experiences in culinary schools and as a professional chef have taught him that everything in the kitchen can, and should, be used. His relaxed laid-back tone tackles a serious subject. It embraces a lifestyle that eliminates waste, helps the environment, and enables home cooks to stretch their food budgets. Cooking Scrappy saves you money, helps to save the planet, and ups your cooking game. Joel stands for the bruised, the forgotten, and the back of the fridge. Will you stand with him?!

Books Description:

A smart, inspiring cookbook showing how to plan, shop, and cook for dinners (and lunches and desserts) all through the week. The secret? Cooking ahead. Amanda Hesser and Merrill Stubbs, founders of the online kitchen and home destination Food52, pull off home-cooked dinners with their families with stunning regularity. But they don't cook every night. Starting with flexible base dishes made on the weekend, Amanda and Merrill mix, match, and riff to create new dinners, lunches, and even desserts throughout the week. Blistered tomatoes are first served as a side, then become sauce for spaghetti with corn. Tuna, poached in olive oil on a Sunday, gets paired with braised peppers and romesco for a fiery dinner, with spicy mayo for a hearty sandwich, and with zucchini and couscous for a pack-and-go salad. Amanda and Merrill’s seasonal plans give you everything you need to set yourself up well for the week, with grocery lists and cooking timelines. They also share clever tips and tricks for more confident cooking, showing how elements can work across menus and seasons to fit your mood or market, and how to be scrappy with whatever’s left in the fridge. These building blocks form A New Way to Dinner, the key to smarter, happier cooking that leaves you with endless possibilities for the week ahead.

“Guides readers toward the road less consumptive, offering practical advice and moral support while making a convincing case that individual actions . . . do matter.” —Elizabeth Royte, author, Garbage Land and Bottlemania Like many people, Beth Terry didn’t think an individual could have much impact on the environment. But while laid up after surgery, she read an article about the staggering amount of plastic polluting the oceans, and decided then and there to kick her plastic habit. In Plastic-Free, she shows you how you can too, providing personal anecdotes, stats about the environmental and health problems related to plastic, and individual solutions and tips on how to limit your plastic footprint. Presenting both beginner and advanced steps, Terry includes handy checklists and tables for easy reference, ways to get involved in larger community actions, and profiles of individuals—Plastic-Free Heroes—who have gone beyond personal solutions to create change on a larger scale. Fully updated for the paperback edition, Plastic-Free also includes sections on letting go of eco-guilt, strategies for coping with overwhelming problems, and ways to relate to other people who aren’t as far along on the plastic-free path. Both a practical guide and the story of a personal journey from helplessness to empowerment, Plastic-Free is a must-read for those concerned about the ongoing health and happiness of themselves, their children, and the planet.
